With the fall out from Tuesdays game still lingering around the forum I thought it best that I start my first match thread of the season and blow the cobwebs away and move on.
I'm surprised Chelsea didn't insist on a Sunday fixture with it being only three days after their CL game compared to our four days.
Will that make a difference to Conte and his team selection? probably not.
Thing is, what selection will Jürgen go with for this one?
Does he stick with Moreno at left back or will he put Robertson back in the frame?
Mignolet for Karius?
Will Lallana play his first game this season? if so who pays the price?
Will Matip be fit and replace Lovren?
Our front three have been on fire and I'm pretty certain Mo Salah will have a point to prove to his previous employer.
We've been blessed with some fine performances against sh*te teams lately, namely West ham, Southampton, Huddesfield but this one is going to be completely different.
Chelsea are beatable, we know that but they will pose a problem for us, the like of which we haven't had since the Spurs game.
The thought of Lovren trying to keep tabs on Morata and Moreno tackling Hazard gives me palpatations.
My head says this has got a 0-0 written all over it.
My heart see's Mo Salah scoring the winner in a very tight 1-0 victory.
